Juggling high school and part-time jobs is a tough act. The parents demand good grades. Your social life demands cash. And you demand a decent night of sleep. Somewhere in the middle, there's a sweet spot of happiness. But finding it is easier said than done.
Part-time jobs can be purely that - jobs. Or, if you already know what type of career you'd like to start chasing, a job can be an experience-building stepping stone. For example, if you know you want to go into business, working behind a register will give you practical building blocks and a beginner's guide to business savvy. (And if you're working in a restaurant, you may even get a funny looking hat.)
Below you'll find some helpful articles for finding - and maybe more importantly - succeeding at part-time jobs as a high school student. Don't worry, we've kept it short and sweet. We know you have homework - and that last thing you want is more reading.
